Is there going to be a Firefly Lane season two?

The bosses at Netflix are yet to announce whether Firefly Lane will return for another ten episodes in the future, however, the show's creator, Maggie Friedman, is clearly on board with the idea.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, she said: "I think there are a lot more stories to tell, if we're lucky enough to have a season two, of those girls going through high school and what that's like. I'd love to keep telling us that those stories and those actors are so good, so of course, I would want to keep seeing them."

What would season two of Firefly Lane be about?

Season one of Firefly Lane ended a dramatic cliffhanger which saw the leading characters Tully and Kate come to blows at Kate's father's funeral over an unexplained argument. It seems that the writer did this deliberately, telling ET: "I knew that Tully and Kate were going to be estranged at the end of the season, but I didn't know how I was going to dramatize that."

She added: "I knew we were working towards that signpost because I felt like a good cliffhanger for season one is: 'Oh my God, wait, these Firefly Lane girls forever are suddenly not? What happened?' I wanted to leave the audience with some big questions."

For fans that are wanting a bit more information, they could look to the original novel for ideas on what a second season could bring. In the novel, when Kate turns to Tully for advice regarding her troublesome teenage daughter, Marah, Tully decides to bring the mother-and-daughter-duo onto her talk show, The Girlfriend Hour, to discuss the issue.

But during the segment, Tully somehow ends up putting her foot in it and makes out her friend to be a bad mother. It's not yet known if the TV show will follow this same format in the future, but it's certainly a possibility!
